Rainy Day

We just can't catch a break with the weather around here.  This is the time of year when we should be able to make hay like crazy but we're getting hit with one storm after another.  The hay is getting more mature by the day (and losing nutritional value) but there isn't a thing we can do about it. 

The only good part is that the pastures are plenty lush and the sheep aren't suffering from the heat.  They aren't thrilled to be rained on, but as long as it's warm summer rain they will just have to tough it out. 

Umm, I'm really kind of wet here......

The Cotswolds are especially pretty when clean from the rain.

She won't let us in.  <Sigh>  She's the MEAN lady.

I'm so wet my color's running.

Isn't that a cool marking?  Looks kind of like a heart on his side.

And after the storm, if it's the right time of day we get bee-yoo-tiful clouds and sky.

Evening glory

I doubt the sheep can appreciate how lovely it is, but I"m sure they're glad it stopped raining.  It doesn't take much to make a sheep happy.
